With every stage of our set process, you'll be deeply involved to ensure that we build a brand that perfectly embodies you. We believe in full transparency with our clients, which is how we build trust and make an exceptional brand together.
Positioning is everything, so we kickoff by defining your brand's edge. We solidify your goals, audit of your brand (online and offline), establish a mood board, and create a plan of action to get you there.
We don't believe in headshots. Instead, you'll be paired up with one of our esteemed photographers, no matter where you are. You'll end up with editorial portraits that recreate the in-person experience.
More than a logo—a visual system for your brand with logo compositions, color, typography, and more, presented in a beautiful board for future reference.
A Squarespace site build from start to finish. We handle planning, design, and copywriting. Best of all? You’ll have complete control over the final product.
Grow followers, book gigs, appear in the press, or acquire customers—we've done it all. Each strategy call focuses on any topic of your choice—and you'll leave with clarity to tackle it on your own.
Ready? Start here.
During our brand audit, we'll establish your goals, identify your competitive advantages, determine a visual strategy, and lay out a plan to help you get there with recommendations that can be executed with (or without) our team.
90-minute consultation + detailed recap
We’ve probably answered it before (below). If you haven't found what you're looking for, don't hesitate to contact us.
+ Do you bill hourly?
We know what it takes to get an effective brand. After working with hundreds of clients, we've unlocked the science behind building a brand and usually know the time it will take to get the job done properly. We pride ourselves on offering agency-quality work without the hefty price tag. Whether you hire us on retainer or a batch of strategy calls, you won't ever get a surprise invoice from us.
+ What if I just want help on social media?
In our experience, the best social media accounts have a brand, even if it isn't overt. Social media can be a lot of work and we want to make sure that our clients have a purpose for posting in the first place. By starting off services with a brand audit, we'll be considering the overall message that your brand is portraying, which will help with your social media strategy. Following the brand audit, you'll receive a detailed recap that will clarify your brand, along with specific strategies to master social media that will engage your audience.
+Is a brand audit mandatory?
Yes. A mechanic can't fix a car without popping the hood, and a brand strategist can't advise without evaluating what's working (and what isn't). Our audit consultation is a critical spark to the branding process. It ensures we're clear on your goals, prioritizing the right strategy, and mapping out a plan of action for swift execution. You'll get a feel for our working dynamic (and vice versa) so we can collaborate at our very best once we start branding. The session will also give you a clear picture of your brand's positioning—from associated themes, elevator pitch, and recommended social media profiles—that will make you one step closer to the brand you want to become.
+ Why Squarespace for websites?
We exclusively build our client sites on Squarespace. Yes, some people use Wordpress, Wix, or Weebly out of preference, but we exclusively use Squarespace because:
It's user-friendly. We never want our clients to be on the hook with us or a developer after the site is launched. With Squarespace, making changes in the future requires no code, so clients can make changes on their own. (We include a training call as part of the project that anyone on your team can attend.) It's very intuitive, which we find is helpful for clients in the long run.
It offers 24/7 customer service. As part of having a site on Squarespace, you get access to their 24/7 customer support, who are readily available to answer any questions you have via chat and email. If you want anything revised/reworked to your Squarespace site years into the future, Squarespace's team will be able to guide you with making the changes on your own with no charge, which is very cost efficient. And of course, some clients prefer for us to manage this for them, but it's always reassuring to know that Squarespace is there with 24/7 if the guidance is needed.
It values design. We have dabbled with Wordpress sites in the past, but we've found that Squarespace lends itself to absolutely beautiful, effective websites. All of their sites are automatically scaled for mobile, so there's no need for extra coding for responsive design. Unless you're wanting to use intricate plugins or a complex online store, there's nothing you can't do on Squarespace that can be done on Wordpress.
We often view websites as a conduit for getting new customers on the phone with you. We find that Squarespace's backend, customer service, and design help expedite this for the long run. And, if it helps, we've built more than 100 Squarespace sites over the years, and we can't think of any client who regrets switching from Wordpress to Squarespace.
+ Can I get just a website?
In order to build a beautiful house, you need to have the right materials. A brand identity and photography are essential components to make a website essential. (Take a look at our Projects page if you don't believe us.) That being said, if you're confident that a brand isn't needed for your site, consider our a la carte brand audit service and we can provide an assessment and custom website quote.
+ Can I talk to you before buying?
We encourage it and offer a complimentary 15-minute discovery call for every prospective client. Just visit our contact page, fill in the form, and we'll be in touch with a call time.
